This paper describes a computer sound syn- thesis system, based on artificial neural networks, that constructs a mapping between adjectives and adverbs that describe timbres, and sounds having those timbres. This is used in two ways: firstly, to recognize the timbral characteristics of sounds supplied to the system, and, secondly, to make changes to sounds based on descriptions of timbral change.
